Roberts as the swing vote is the most curious here...however, he gave hint of this when on Monday he sided with the federal Govt. on most provisions in the AZ Immigration ruling...he seems to be upholding federal authority in a number of instances & at least shows he is less obviously partisan than Scalia and the practically brain-dead Thomas.

Still, Citizens United was brought to us almost entirely by Roberts, who went out of his way to bring it up at all.

I was kind of surprised at how quickly they dismissed the arguments against the mandate as an issue of unconstitutional application of the commerce clause (as originally argued by Congress) and opined/ruled that it was indeed a tax (originally touted by Congress as most definitely NOT being a tax).

November backdraft anyone?

Did Roberts just secretly engineer the cleansing of the White House, Senate and House of Representatives? Oh, the conspiracy theories abound.........

In the words of today's empty headed, skillet licking, youth, "Meh"

Time to go restake my Radiator Charlie Mortgage Lifter Tomato plants - I have six that are over 7 feet high and have anywhere from 8 to 14 tomatoes on them. All of which will reach 2-4 pounds......each.

Look for "Mando's Fukushima Commemorative Meltdown 10 Pepper Nuclear Death Salsa" later this summer.
